I’m not a big Sci-Fi buff, but I did own my share of original Star Wars figures. I used to have the original Millennium Falcon, Death Star, and AT-AT (and I kick myself to this day for no longer having them). I do recall wanting to be an astronaut when I was little. So add all of this space stuff with my love for prog rock and concept albums, and you might have a clue of where “Flood (Eta Carinae)" come from.

"Flood (Eta Carinae)" is not necessarily a story unto itself nor is it a part of a longer concept piece. However, I’ve had an idea running through my head for a potential concept that might be interesting to explore. If it were to come to fruition, then perhaps this would be its trailer/teaser.

Part I of the song features my Artisan X-30 acoustic by Emerald Guitars tracked with three microphones. I panned one mic hard left, one center, and the last hard right. I then eq’d the left mic so it was only bass frequencies, the middle mic so it was only mids, and the right only highs. What it ended up doing was give the illusion that the listener is engulfed in the sound of the guitar. It’s probably best appreciated with headphones.


Let the stars fall away
Blinding, streaming
Waiting for time to fall asleep
Tell me I'm dreaming

Forever drifting
Swept away
Endless surrounding
Engulfed in eternal slumber's wave
Hopelessly drowning
